Your vet may recommend different times depending on the breed of your dog. Since my puppy was adopted, we gave him the first set of vaccines at 9 weeks old. I recommend printing this as a general guide to keeping up with vaccines. vaccination-chart.gif
 
It's very important to vaccinate your dogs because it offers protection against a lot of diseases. And some of them can be deadly, specially for puppies.
My uncle's 3 year old dog had a bad case of Carre disease and the doctors struggled to save it. It did not die, but remained with some neurological problems. And all of this because my uncle was late by some months with the early vaccine.
I believe it's better to prevent than to treat, otherwise you will end up paying lots of money to save your beloved pet and maybe it will never recover completely.

I've owned dogs for a number of years now, and they've always had their vaccinations. While it might not be a nice experience for the dogs, I do think it's essential to keeping them healthy and preventing any illnesses they could get.

Is there any reason why people wouldn't get their dog vaccinated?

I certainly can't think of any reason not to, and not just to prevent disease in your dog. If some jerk gets bitten by your dg, and you can't prove rabies vaccination right away, it is very likely your dog will be killed for tissue to be sent for rabies testing. Not to mention that if your dog does get rabies that is fatal to human, they can bring in ticks that spred Lyme disease, etc.

For me vaccination is no brainer.

In a lot of places, it's illegal to not get the rabies vaccination. Anyway, why would you not vaccinate your dog completely? Even though my dog dislikes the vet, it has to be done. I want him to live a long and healthy life, I don't want him to get a disease and suffer when I could have prevented it.

Plus, going to the vet means you have a paper trail for your pet. Ours gave us a pet passport with all his information in it, not to mention I keep all the papers and records we receive from them. If your dog ever gets stolen, this is will make it a thousand times easier to get them back because you can easily prove the dog is yours.
 
Most pet owners concentrate on other diseases of pets and forget to vaccinate them. This is quite a good guide and a conscientious pet owner should print it. I wish it was in PDF for one to be able to download it. Dogs are exposed to dangerous diseases like rabies which is a zoonotic disease. It can be transmitted from animals to humans. Vaccination becomes more crucial when one realizes that most virus diseases that afflict dogs and other pets are not only fatal to them but also to humans.

Yes, some people do not vaccinate their dogs because they either think it is unnecessary, or they think it is costly.
Some people do not value their dogs enough and only see them as security tools, so vaccinations are not an option.

Hey, there is a way for you to print it and to anyone else who wants to print t in the future. Just right-click on the image and select save this image. It will allow you to save it to your documents and use later. I agree with you on the vaccination points.
 
Vaccination is the first thing in my mind after getting the dog. Of course, we must set away a place for him to sleep, and provide him food and water; his health is just as important as ours. I took him straight to the vet two days later after we brought him home just to make sure he is protected from whatever.

I totally agree, not everyone values their dogs. In our country most of the dogs that belong to people living in the country side are not vaccinated, and let's not talk about neutering. Some of the owners are too poor to afford it, while others don't consider it necessary, if something happens to the dog they'll just get another one. :(

I think your probably right and people maybe like the idea of being a dog owner, but they don't realise just how costly it can be. I also think people can sometimes buy a dog for the wrong reasons, and they don't understand how much of a responsibility your taking on.
 
Whenever we would have a puppy, we would always consult the vet for the vaccination. I don't recall specifically the age of the puppy since we always rely on the vet. In fact, it is our vet who calls me for the regular vaccination as maintenance against diseases. What's good with our vet is that he makes house calls. He takes care of our 3 dogs which frees me of the responsibility of thinking the vaccine schedule.
